An Idea for Your Excess Tomatoes

These came out of the oven minutes ago. They’ll cool and be ready for a freezer bag.

If you’re wondering what in the world you’re going to do with all those tomatoes growing in your backyard garden, I have a suggestion: roast and freeze them.

Slice them in a way you prefer, cover them with a good olive oil and a nice spread of garlic (fresh, powder or bottled) and sprinkle on fresh basil, sea salt and pepper. Roast them for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees (depending on just how roasted you want them). Let  them cool; put them in a freezer bag and stash them at the back of the freezer for one of those cold winter evenings when a wonderful marinara sauce is required.
